NEW ORLEANS (WGNO) – Frenchmen Street is home to a lot of strange sightings on a daily basis, but imagine what it was like Wednesday night when a woman gave birth in front of a night club on Frenchmen.

Nola.com reports that a woman gave birth to a baby girl outside on Frenchmen Street sometime around 11 p.m.

When the band playing inside Vaso heard what happened, they went outside and welcomed the baby into the world with a rendition of “Birthday” by The Beatles.

An EMS spokeswoman told Nola.com that the baby had already been born when first responders arrived. The baby and her mother were taken to the hospital, both reportedly in good health.
